Second chance shoes!

It's a fairly short and sweet blog offering from me today but I thought I would share these new shoes with you! You may recall I bought something similar from New Look way back here, I was a little bit late to the party then but it looks as though this style of shoe is here to stay! I didn't get along too well with the New Look version, I felt they were a tad blingy for everyday wear with the gold heel and they weren't particularly comfy so I eBayed them when I first starting culling my wardrobe back in May. I've seen a few bloggers donning these on Instagram so I decided to give these Topshop ones a go! I love the fact the are completely flat! They aren't leather as I didn't want to spend big bucks after not being 100% sold on the initial New Look pair. I have the suede-look version, they also come in red and leopard print Very pleased with them for £28.


They are perfect for wearing on the not-so-sunny days instead of sandals, like today when I wore them with my Warehouse culottes (I am totally feeling the culotte love, 2nd time I have worn them this week!)

I've been a bit tardy on the blog front of late, I blame the school holidays!! Normal routines go out of the window for a few weeks, no house work gets done and it's hard to find the time to keep up with everything, not that I'm complaining as I do love spending quality time with the family! Anyway, I will just share a few of my recent outfits, I do post my outfits most days on Instagram if you don't already follow me, you can do so here!

    1. Thanks Sue! I am loving the shoes.....looking forward to getting plenty of wear out of them in the coming weeks! It definitely looks as though this style is here to stay as there are so many around at the moment....I'm quite tempted by the Zara eyelet ones also that I've seen on a few blogs! xx

    1. Mwah! Thank you so much Sarah....your comment has made my day! :0)

  3. I really didn't expect you to go for some more ghillie shoes but you're right, I think they are here to stay for a bit longer. They can take over from your black Figs which I note you have certainly had your money's worth out of. I'm really hoping the nice weather is here to stay a bit longer ... I still haven't been able to wear all my summer clothes - how miserable is that?

    1. I do hope the weather stays a bit longer but at least I now if options if it is pants Sue!! I have worn the Figs tons and so I'm pretty sure I will get my wear out of the Ghillies during the tricky Autumnal transitional time! xx

  4. Im a bit like you Michelle I have tried but haven't found the right pair! It certainly looks like the ghillie shoes are here for a while, and more? I need to have a look at the Topshop ones, especially if they are comfy....These days that's always a major factor!! Some great outfit choices, and so pleased you've become a culottes convert too....I absolutely love them, especially with your new shoes!!!

    1. I've dilly-dallied for way too long about these shoes Helen, I actually ordered a pair of ASOS Lana's which are much the same, the straps were a little fancier, but in between ordering and receiving them I spotted the Topshop ones and I fell for them hook, line and sinker so I didn't even try on the ASOS ones when they arrived. The Topshop ones are quite dainty in comparison which won me over, they are comfy which is oh-so important these days! I am TOTALLY in love with the culottes....where have they been all my life?! xx

  5. I have a similar pair from Next - your culottes look perfect with your shoes.

  6. Really loving your dress, Michelle. As always, your outfits are very inspirational! I'm with you on the shrewd A/W purchasing as am on a tight budget this year but have just 'Konmari-d' all my clothes etc and am itching to fill the newly cleared wardrobe space! Xx

    1. Thanks so much Heidi, lovely to hear I may have given you a few ideas! Yep, I need to be shrewd....it's so hard when the new A/W stuff comes as it's easy to get sidetracked. I'm going to start off by buying a few basics, things that need replacing then see what trend items I fancy to update the good old classics I already have. I'm really looking forward to going through my A/W stuff and deciding what will survive my next cull.....let's get ruthless! Konmaring everything first makes it easier to see the wood for the trees! Thank you for the lovely comment! xx
